The death of Roberto Gómez Bolaños, the famous Chavo del 8, fills us with sadness… We will miss him.

We were abandoned by one of the geniuses of Mexican humor, Roberto Gómez Bolaños, who in addition to being the creator of unforgettable characters like El Chavo del 8, was an exceptional artist, as he was a producer, actor, director, screenwriter and composer. Such was his talent for writing, that his nickname ‘Chespirito’ comes from Shakespeare.
